Do tell, I love poking fun at bad fanfics. Also, be lucky that you never read My Immortal, perhaps the worst fanfic ever written for anything.
Here's an example of a chapter (but I warn you, they're quite horrendous):
Sadly, S_man made several needless fanfics. This shows the horrors of what he wrote: RAYMAN: heeey glowbox wanna go intoo town?
GLOWBOX: Sure ray can i have a plum furst
RAYMAN: go on den bt den we most go into town
GLOWBOX: lol ray why da rush :lol: :lol: :lol:
RAYMAN: I want to boy a new skatboard
GLOWBOX: I dident no u could skatboard :D
Raymen and glowbox went intoo town and saw someting....

End of chapter 1!!!!!
You should've seen the replies :P

And I'm honestly not exaggerating at all. The forum was full of 7 and 8 year olds writing fanfics. I think old mod TK deleted some of them :mrgreen:

Of course, i used to be Flyingrabids, but i without think until know, i realised it would make me sound like a rabbid fan. I wanted to be called Mister dark, but for some reason Hunchman told me it's not aloud. So i just called myself FAB (yep, short for fabulous) but thats just a thing.

The fanfics were written in the old RZ, so I obviously can't remember the exact words used, but they are very similar. And yeah, there were many replies, most of which were pure flame.

Lal I hate fanfics written as scripts. Scripts are for comics, not for stories.

Anyways, I took my name because back when I was younger, lime green was my favourite colour. However, Lime was taken at dA, and so I took Limely. *drumroll*
If I were to choose a screen-name today I'd probably pick some odd adjective describing myself, such as Whimsical or something.

I had thought about changing my username to something else at times, but I realized I wouldn't be the same.

Well, in my case, I'm Stan. But what with 423321?

...huh. You'll not guess.

When I was probably 11, 12 or 13, in our school there was about 49% of lessons in plan. Because they were usually those in the middle, we - me and a few other dudes - were bored. Girls jumped on a gum rope, other boys played games "from 1,5 years old"... and we decided to make a Rayman card game. Not really original idea, but what could we do...

Before we started creating actual cards, I bought a notebook and wrote everything about'em. When we were (finally!) creating actual ones...

P: Stan, what are stats of (I forgot...)?
S: 4-2-3-3.
K: 2-1.
S: Nah! 4-2-3-3!
K: Then-2-1!
S: 4-2-3-3!
K: 2-1!

It looped like this for about quarter. Now, you have to know, in Polish this sound more rythmically. No
four-two-three-three-two-one
but
cztery-dwa-trzy-trzy-dwa-jeden
in English, it probably would sound like that
chtarree-dvah-chshee-chshee-dvah-iaddan
so when I have no idea for the nick, I used this.

You'll never guess where i got my username. It's named after the game we're all waiting for: Rayman 4. And about the 121? Well, back at RZ (where i picked this name) i couldn't just call myself Rayman4, so i called myself Rayman4_121, because i had to "pick a number". And then i had the most unoriginal username in username history. When i joined PC, i called myself R4_121, to make it sound cooler. But sadly, it's still lame. I think i'm gonna change it.
